*Assault Boats are small, spaceborne transports designed to pierce the hull of an enemy starship and desposit a squad of soldiers for a quick hit-and-run attack.

"Gryphon, this is Meteor Wing. Attack runs complete, target well struck."
— Squadron Leader Sinclaire, defence of Port Wander against WAAAGH! Gulgrog

Attack Craft is a catch-all term used for the small spacecraft and aircraft that are deployed from larger starships' launch bays in support of naval warfleets during combat operations. They are divided into five general categories depending on their size and role:

  • Fighters - Fighters, along with Interceptors, are the smallest Attack Craft, using their speed and firepower to intercept and destroy other enemy Attack Craft and ordnance.
  • Bombers - Bombers are lumbering spacecraft that lack the speed of fighters, but carry enough firepower to threaten capital ships.
  • Assault Boats - Assault Boats are small, spaceborne transports designed to pierce the hull of an enemy starship and deposit a single or multiple squads of soldiers for a quick hit-and-run attack.
  • Aeronautica - Aeronautica includes all small crafts that are designed to support planetary military operations, including atmospheric fighters, interceptors, and bombers along with troop transports and military cargo transports and drop ships.
  • Support Craft - Support Craft are small spacecraft designed to support diplomatic and mercantile operations either on a planet's surface or for transport between different starships.
